On Nico's and Varun's last episode before graduation, we are happy to say that we have a great guest to celebrate the end of an era. The guest is none other than Khoi Vinh, Design Director at Adobe. Khoi details his journey as a designer starting from Otis College of Art and Design to his time at The New York Times to his current position at Adobe. Varun and Nico also pick his brain on the difference between artists and designers as well as between generalists and specialists. Furthermore, Varun was excited to have Khoi on the podcast to talk about his love for movies and his blog, Subtraction. As the last episode of the quarter and 2021-2022 academic school year, this episode is unmissable and a farewell letter to everyone who has listened for so long. That said, I'm sure Nico and Varun will be back sometime or another.

MacVoices #20216: Khoi Vinh on How Bumpr Lets You Choose Where You Open Links
If you use multiple email clients or need to open certain links in a specific web browser, then Bumpr is for you. Khoi Vinh explains how Bumpr was born out of a need that he and his co-creator Scott Ostler had. You might have that same need as you work from home if your employer mandates something other than what you use. Khoi reviews how it works, why it does not present any security risks, and why you may forget that you are using it.
